There are two things in life that are very important to me. Being a good, present, engaged mom and maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle. I used to feel like they would constantly fight against each other, each one vying for my attention. So often this left me feeling discouraged. But over the years I learned that with a little creative thinking and openness the two worlds can collide. And when they do, it’s pretty amazing.

A busy moms guide to an active life style. Tips and tricks I've used for years to succeed!

Instead of figuring out how to balance each of my two worlds individually, I started looking for more ways to bring them together. Today I want to share with you some tried and true ways that have brought me success over the past several years.

5 Health Tips To Live By!

Around this time every year my thoughts turn towards pursuing an active healthy life-style. It is a season for germs, a season for over indulging and like it or not, New Years goals are just around the corner. Taking the time to refocus now is something I never regret. Today I want to share with you 5 health tips to live by.

#1 Get enough sleep

Oh how the days are long. I always feel so much better when I am well rested. I know it is hard getting to bed on time. To help I closely monitor what time I need to wake up and make it my goal to be in bed early enough to get at least 7 hours of rest. 

#2 Exercise regularly

I always feel better when I exercise. I love having a routine, knowing I am growing stronger, and it helps improve my mood too.

#3 Drink more water

Staying hydrated is just as important in the fall & winter months as it is in the summer. It is easy to forget this and try to hydrate yourself off of coffee, never a good plan. Set goals or alarms to remind you to get your suggested intake. 

#4 Cut out stress

The effects of stress can be exhausting mentally and physically. Keep a close watch on your schedule making sure that you don’t cram too much in. A lot of stress comes from time management issues and all too often we are our own worst enemy. Say no more and cut out any unnecessary stress. 

#5 Take my vitamins

A few weeks ago at the Dr. they asked me if I was taking any vitamins. a sense of shame fell upon me as I answered them with a no. I knew something needed to change.

I always feel better when I take my daily vitamins and one of my favorite products is Emergen-C. With 1,000 mg of vitamin C, electrolytes, and 7 B vitamins. It’s the perfect way to start my day. I recently grabbed a box at my local Wal-Mart, stocking up for cold and flu-season. I have been taking it daily for over a week now and I can tell it makes all the difference.
